Old Dutch Foods Inc. issued a voluntary recall of some of its flavored potato chip and tortilla chip products this week after discovering one of its milk suppliers may have provided ingredients contaminated with Salmonella.
The St. Paul-based snack maker said it has not found the presence of the harmful bacteria in its products and no illnesses have been reported, but is issuing the recall out of “an abundance of caution and with adherence to strict quality standards” for its products.
This move is in response to Valley Milk Products LLC’s initial recall. Virginia-based Valley Milk supplies Old Dutch with a seasoning component used in its flavored chips.
Limited batches of jalapeño popper, French onion and Cheddar and sour cream Old Dutch Ripples are included in the recall. Old Dutch co-packs other branded products. The recall includes two Roundy’s chip flavors, two Urge flavors and one Lunds & Byerlys flavor. The recalled varieties and packing codes are listed on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s website.
Salmonella is a bacteria that can cause serious or fatal infections in young children, elderly people or those with weakened immune systems. In healthy people, Salmonella can cause fever, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting and stomach pain.
The recalled products were sold in U.S. grocery and retail stores.
The company didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
